how to epoxy a coffee mug with a handle?

Ever wonder how to epoxy a coffee mug? We’re here to help with that, as well as how to seal a tumbler or attach a handle. Read on for some answers!

Can you put epoxy on a coffee mug?

Yes, you can use epoxy to seal a coffee mug. Epoxy is a two-part resin that is used to make mugs, but it’s also very useful for sealing them.

It’s an extremely strong glue, and as long as your mug has been cleaned properly beforehand, it will create an airtight seal between the handle and vessel of your coffee mug once applied.

Note that there are several different types of epoxy available for purchase (clear and black). They’re all basically the same thing: a strong glue that bonds well with most surfaces.

Can you epoxy tumbler with a handle?

Yes, you can put epoxy on a coffee mug! And you can also resin a coffee cup.

A few things to be aware of:

  • Be sure to use a non-porous surface like glass or metal, not plastic. Your specific application may require more research.
  • Be careful when applying the epoxy; it’s messy and hard to clean up if you get it on your hands or clothes. You might want to wear gloves while doing this step (some people even recommend wearing an old shirt). If there’s some leftover in your container after using it all up, don’t throw it away—it’ll be useful for future projects!

How do you make epoxy coffee mugs?

When making your own epoxy coffee mugs, you can use any cup that is made from glass, plastic, metal, ceramic, or porcelain.

Disposable cups are also fair game. If you want to take it one step further and make an even more special gift for someone in your life (or just for yourself), try using paper or fabric as a base for your mug instead of just plain old paper.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, try using empty cans! They make great storage containers for small items like buttons and beads—just make sure they’re clean first so there’s no residue left over from whatever was inside the can originally before giving them away as gifts later on down the road!

You’ll also find that mugs with handles are especially easy-to-make; this is because these types of mugs already have built-in holes where handles would normally go anyway so all we have to do now is glue those pieces onto our new project before pouring in some super strong epoxy resin solution into each opening (and let me tell ya: don’t forget about those lids).

It’ll only take about two minutes before everything hardens up nicely again but then again sometimes it depends on how thick each layer gets coated onto each other while they’re curing under UV light!”

Can you resin a coffee cup?

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to seal a coffee mug with resin.

Because glass is porous, it will absorb liquids and odors over time. This can cause your favorite mug to start looking dingy and dirty. But by sealing the glass with epoxy resin, you’ll be able to keep your mugs looking brand new for years!

How do you seal a mug with epoxy?

There are many ways to seal a mug with epoxy, but there’s only one way to do it better: with a thick layer of epoxy.

A thick layer is the best type of glass coating for mugs because it provides both durability and safety. A thick layer also creates an aesthetically-pleasing finish on your coffee mug that will impress your friends and family.

Which epoxy resins are food safe?

You can use epoxy resins to seal a coffee mug. And you can use epoxy resins to attach a handle to your coffee mug. And, best of all, you can even use epoxy resins on the inside of your cup!

This is great news for anyone who loves their morning cup of joe but hates having cold hands when they drink it.

With just a little bit of patience and this handy guide, you’ll be able to make some beautiful mugs that will keep your beverages nice and cozy for years (or at least until you have time/inclination/money.

How do you attach a handle to an epoxy tumbler?

The first step is to determine the type of glue you will use. The most common are:

wood glue, two-part epoxy, resin, plastic glue, and silicone glue.

Wood Glue: Wood glues are made from natural proteins such as wheat or soybeans that have been processed into a gelatinous substance and mixed with water.

This creates a bond between two pieces of wood that is strong enough for decorative work but not strong enough for structural support.

Two-Part Epoxy Resin: Two-part epoxies are highly effective adhesives because they cure at room temperature over time rather than requiring heat like many other types of adhesive substances do (such as super glue).

In addition to being environmentally friendly because they don’t require heating devices such as ovens or stoves; two-part epoxies offer another benefit in that they come with easy instructions on how much material should go where so there’s no guesswork involved even if you’ve never used this type before!

How do you make a tumbler handle?

In order to get the handle off, you need to create a void in the epoxy. So, let’s do that.

  • Remove the tumbler handle (after all, it’s not going to be useful once you’re done).
  • Use a Dremel or other rotary tool with a fine grinding bit to remove about half an inch of material from around where you want your new handle to go (this is called “grinding down” and will help create some space for new epoxy later on). The goal is just to take off enough material so that when you apply new epoxy around it, there won’t be too much pressure pushing against it from one side or another—you don’t want any bulges! Now, depending on what kind of material your mug is made out of at this point (if any), your next step may change slightly based on what kind of damage caused by removing said material was done previously—we’ll talk more about that later when we get into repairs and refitting handles onto mugs with existing damage


It’s not hard to make a glass tumbler with a handle, but it will take some time. You’ll need to mix up some epoxy resin, then pour it into the cup and let it dry overnight before attaching the handle on top of it.

It may seem like an extra step in the process when all you want is coffee in an instant, but we promise that these methods will help keep your drink warm without adding any extra calories or sugar!
